Inside Out

The ARK Booktower by Rintala Eggertsson as part of the '1:1 Architects Build Small Spaces' exhibition back in 2010 at the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) in London, UK. The structure consisted of a timber tower with walls of books enclosing a spiral stair case and a central core. The central core was ergonomically scaled to create generous knooks to indulge in one of the many books that made up the walls.

Wooden Slide built into a small stepped home library in the ‘Panorama House, Chungcheongbuk-do, South Korea designed by architect Moon Hoon

A statement by the architect:

The basic request of upper and lower spatial organization and the shape of the site prompted a long and tin house with fluctuating facade which would allow for more differentiated view. The key was coming up with a multi-functional space which is a large staircase, bookshelves, casual reading space, home cinema, slide and many more…
The client was very pleased with the design, and the initial design was accepted and finalized almost instantly, only with minor adjustments. The kitchen and dining space is another important space where family gathers to bond. The TV was pushed away to a smaller living room. The attic is where the best view is possible, it is used as a play room for younger kids. The multi-use stair and slice space brings much active energy to the house, not only children, but also grown ups love the slide staircase…An action filled playful house for all ages…
